Any topic that is relevant to translation of wiki content or to the impact that massive online collaboration wiki-style will have on the world of translation. For a sample, see:

How will massive online collaboration impact the world of translation

Should we change the name?

Need to appeal to many constituencies:
  • wiki
  • collaborative content creation
  • translators
  • terminologists
  • content authors who need their content translated

The current title appeals mostly to translators.

How about

Collaborative Translation and Terminology?
